video here. at the end there are some close ups. the board has some really different contours on the top of the deck. most boards have been relatively flat and featureless (especially on bottom)

I saw it in the SOB video, I don't think I've seen a hybrid flex board with that level of top shaping yet.

Yeah And from What I understand, They are thinking about putting removable plates in the tip and tail to adjust flex. But Not sure if they decided that or not.

how much flex compared to the other Obrien flex models?

This was the stiffest of the protos, but i have not ridden another obrein flex so i can't compare them. I would compare this to the LF FLX but a little less flex

It is definitely a sick board. It's stiffer than O'Brien's other rail boards and LF's FLX and Hybrid. Here's a shot of Bill Parker taking it for a ride. There will be a lot more info to come.
